for the cia job. he's dealing with heads of state, administers of defense and intelligence officials he dealt with. >> rose: he's not going to be chairman of the joint chiefs a job he might have wished for in the culmination of his miliry career. how did he take that. >> he was told by second gates in 2010 he wasn't considered. gates came out to check the war and came back and met with petraeus in his office and said you're the key to our expectations, you being the force and the progress and the surge. but i have bad news. you're not being considered. and it stung. he really felt that you know he had stepped down. >> rose: he felt he earned it. >> he felt he earned it, he thought he should be considered but he had mixed feelings actual actually about this position and he tughtbout other positions he would be interested in military. specifically the cia. he thought about keeping the union form on and going to the cia. he proposed that to second gats having liked the idea because he served there before. >> rose: as director. >> right exactly. he took it back to the president and the presid

to the level of an fbi investigation. when it reached the cia director, have the fbi investigate the director of of the cia and the president or the attorney general not be notified of it is a dereliction of duty. the president if he was not told should have been told and that to me was somebody really dropping the ball. the other thing makes the whole thing implausible is you have a four, five, six-month investigation whatever it was. nothing comes out, nothing is disclosed. suddenly on election night the fbi announces the investigation is over and they tell general clapper. the next day the white house finds out about it, the next day general petraeus submits his resignation. friday the president accepts the resignation. we find yesterday the fbi raiding the home of paula broadwell. then we find out general allen has been involved in emails with joe kelley, so you have like four or five different events happening in the last seven days when for the prior five or six months nothing happened publicly. megyn: let me jump in. there are so many names that i think the viewers may be confused. the

of characters in the scandal that brought down the c.i.a. director general petraeus is growing. it now involves the commander of u.s. forces in afghanistan, the general john allen who took over the job when general petraeus left it to run the c.i.a. now officials say general allen's nomination to become the supreme allied commander in europe is on "hold" while potentially inappropriate e-mails are being checked out, and her name is jill kelley, a friend of the petraeus family and triggered the original f.b.i. investigation that revealed the director was cheating on his wife. she contacted an at she knew, shirtless agent, claiming to have received anonymous threatening e-mails tells her to stay away from general petraeus. it is unclear but the f.b.i. found reason to open an investigation. investigators determined that the e-mails were from general's biographer paula broad wall and she and general petraeus had an fair and neither had done anything criminal but reason that are inexplicable at this moment, there is more after thousands and thousands of e-mails were discovered thousands and thousand
intelligence nor the acting director of the c.i.a. knew who finalized the talking points and they could not explain why it minimized the role of al-qaeda when there is evidence of the terrorist group's involvement. morrell was pushed to explain why petraeus told lawmakers it was a flash mob prompted by the anti-islam video. morrell said he wasn't at petraeus' briefing and had nothing further to add. republicans questions drove the state department to deny request for security after ambassador chrissteins and his team or consulate could not defend against a coordinated attack. >> i'm appalled that the administration could not anticipate the escalating violence and failed to step up the security measures to protect the diplomats. further more, we have seen blunder after blunder as the administration avoids responsibility and accountability. the delay tactics are unacceptable. >> democrats caution the colleagues about jumping to conclusions. >> barack obama was no more responsible for what happened in benghazi than george bush was for september 11. >> reporter: for the decision not to noti
resignation of the cia director germ david petraeus, stepping down because of an extramarital affair. here's part of the message he sent to employees this afternoon. after being married for over 37 years, i showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours. this afternoon, the president graciously accepted my resignation. let's get right to our cnn intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly. pretty shocking information from all we know. what else are you learning? >> right. well, wolf, i don't think i can emphasize what a bombshell this was yesterday. in the letter that was sent to employees at the cia, this is the first they were hearing about what's obviously been going on for a while. and of course while we can't ask general pa traeurs what's going on, there are a few more nuggets that he sent out to the workforce today. he quoted teddy roosevelt when he said one of life's greatest gifts is the opportunity to work hard at work worth doing. these are petraeus's own words.

at the cia. in may this year a government official says broadwell began sending threatening e-mails to jill kelley. she's described as a family friend. petraeus. she lives in tampa but was being warned to stay away. kelley shared her concerns over the threatening nature of the e-mails with that friend at the fbi and that's what prompted this entire investigation. but sometime around july, if we're going to talk about a time frame, we know that according to petraeus' friend, the affair ended and sources are telling cnn petraeus indicated broadwell might be obsessed with him and may have felt she was warding off the competition or something of that sort by sending these e-mails to kelley. >> quite extraordinary details are merging. barbara, if it turns out that this fbi agent was the catalyst for all this, and in fact, almost by default because he had been caught himself behaving improperly, the suggestion then becomes that this fbi investigation was sort of so hack-handed that petraeus was almost brought down by accident, that it should never really have happened. >> that is what people are
that brought down the head of the cia, general david petraeus. another u.s. general is caught in the same tangled web. john allen, top commander in afghanistan, is being investigated by the pentagon for allegedly sending inappropriate e-mails to a married woman, the same woman whose complaint of threatening e-mails from general petraeus' lover cracked the scandal wide open. barbara starr is trying to sort this out for us. it is rather complicated, what's the latest you're getting? >> it is still the same fundamental question for the last 24 hours, wolf. why is john allen being investigated and how on earth did he get caught up in this? marine corps general john allen denies an extramarital affair with jill kelly, the florida socialite whose concern over threatening e-mails led to an investigation that revealed an affair between cia director david petraeus and his biographer, paula broadwell. a pentagon official told reporters allen who commands the war in afghanistan is adamant he did nothing wrong. a senior official close to allen tells cnn of kelly there is no affair, she's a bored soci

the affair starts two months after he took over as cia director and ended about four months ago. four days after the patreaus scandal broke, investigators are trying gather information. what we saw agents searching paula broadwell's home in charlotte, north carolina, the woman involved in the affair with patreaus. fbi spokeswoman would not say what they were actually looking for but you can see they're taking stuff out. seeing the agents carrying boxes and items out of her home last night. it's clear the scandal as it grows could have far-reaching implications. i want to bring in fran townsend a member of the cia external advisory board. it's confusing and complicated story but it's a web and it seems to be taking a lot of people along with it. the fbi turns up 30,000 pages of general john allen's e-mails. what are they possibly looking for and why are they -- why is the military investigating his e-mails? >> okay, so let's back up for a second, right? this starts with the jill kelley, woman in tampa complaint about harassing e-mails and it causes this web, as you call it, to unravel becau
